    If you don't know the place you might just stay at the bar downstairs, huge mistake! Enjoy a dinner upstairs or in the garden, with live piano and great cocktails.

    Have Brunch at this charming decorated restaurant in the West Village. Portions are smallish so order a lot. Then soak up the sun in their secret garden while you enjoy delicious ice cream sandwiches.

    I love it here. I came in for drinks. The servers & bartenders are wonderful to speak with, so even if you come alone you feel you are with friends. It's a lively, unique experience here!

    A date spot with ambiance. If its nice out, ask for seating in the garden. If it's happy hour, take advantage of $6 craft cocktails and $1 oysters (aphrodisiacs!).

    A beautiful space, you must check out the garden area upstairs. Great happy hour that includes good cocktails (but only inside).
  • Lady Zombie S.
    LOVE this place - they were awesome to me and my group on PRIDE SUNDAY (despite our exuberant energy and wild costumes)... and the bartender JP is a doll. :)

    This place is breathtaking-- quaint, charming and full of energy. Beware, the margarita is spicy! Rosé is excellent.

    Great happy hour from 5-7pm weekdays. Grab a cheap(er) drink on the rooftop patio.

    Really cute and cozy adventure! Tiny on the inside but full of warm energy and quaint, funky details. The tables are mismatched and weatherbeaten, the food and service are polished and wonderful.

    Great spot with delicious food (if a bit overpriced). But the ambience in the garden is second to none. Snag a table up there of you can.

    Nice ambiance, beautiful setting, excellent service. Poor value (the tiniest slice of a chicken breast was $26). Left hungry.

    Come for the food but stay for the atmosphere. Bobo has a Victorian vibe, and try to get seating in their gorgeous room upstairs.

    Our party of 9 got a table after waiting for about 10mins w/o a reservation. The waiter's very nasty and rushed us to order everything at the same time because there's another reservation right after.

    For dessert, try the Burnt Butter Panna Cotta! Aside from extremely delicious, its very unique, with distinct flavors that all complement each other. A lighter, easier to digest choice.

    The rude waiter sent another girl to take care of us right after he's done taking orders. I really appreciate her hospitality but I won't come back again since the first one ruined my grad party.

    Tip number one, the patio is not a patio as spoken from the hostess. It's enclosed meaning it's just another room in the restaurant.
